Today is Sept. 11, 2008

I remember 7 years ago when American changed. I feel so differently about things in this day and time as to before. Things are just different. My kids won't ever know how things were before 9-11. Our oldest was only 3 when it happened so he won't remember. I hope that we will all take a moment and remember those loved ones that were lost during 9-11 and those that have lost their lives since fighting for us. God be with their loved ones during the 7 year mark.

Last night while sitting on the sofa talking to my oldest son our dear sweet daughter took two steps and astonished us! We both looked at her then looked at each other with our mouths dropped open! We were in shock. It was so cute. The other boys came running in the room to see what was going on and they wanted to see her walk too. She did it a couple more times and would just laugh! It was definately a sweet moment. On the 19th she'll be 11 months old. Time flys that is for sure.

School pictures were today. I hope that they turn out well. I took the baby and had her put in a group picture with the boys and had her individual picture done too. They put her in a little white wicker was so cute! Can't wait to get them back. I was able to do that where they go to school because it's a private school. They always send a note home letting everyone know that they will take group pictures if anyone would like. I didn't get in the picture but wanted all of the kids together. They all had yellow on. I thought they looked very handsome and of course our daughter looked so pretty. I can't wait to get to see them.

The weather is really starting to cooler. I really don't like cold weather but there's really nothing I can do to keep it from changing. I would be happy for it to stay at about 75 year round! My husband would probably rather it be around 60-65.....I'd be bundled up like that little boy in that movie, 'The Christmas Story'. The part where his mom has so many layers on him and he fell over & couldn't get back up!

Speaking of Christmas, it's almost that time again. I have had the kids already making out a Christmas list to give ideas of something that they might like to get. You know, kids just aren't afraid to ask for the moon and stars. It's amazing how every year they could fill up a page of things they would like. Knowing they won't get all of these things but at least it gives an idea of what they wouldn't mind having. The list does make it so much easier to know what you need to look for to see them have a HUGE smile on their face come Christmas morning. So, we have begun our journey to trying to shop early. Well, I can't really put on here what we found or our oldest might see and know that we're getting him a ..........LOL really did you think I would put it here?!!

Until next time I hope all is well. God Bless you and Keep you.

The school pictures sound really nice! LOL, I remember making "Christmas Lists" - pages and pages of "want" things :) I still enjoy making one, usually on a piece of paper hanging on the frige that I add to throughout the year as I think of stuff I want/need.
I need to get started on my shopping and making for this year!! It will be here sooner than I realize!
